  1. Dietary factors will be positively associated with homicide rates (334-335)Bolton, Ralph - The ecology of East African homicide, 1973 - 2 Variables

    Using homicide rates as an indicator, this article examines the ecological factors that might be functioning as stressors in the environment of thirty-four East African tribes. A series of hypotheses dealing with the relationships between these stressors and tribal levels of aggressiveness are tested.

  2. Geographic location and climatic zone will be positively associated with homicide rates (331-333)Bolton, Ralph - The ecology of East African homicide, 1973 - 3 Variables

    Using homicide rates as an indicator, this article examines the ecological factors that might be functioning as stressors in the environment of thirty-four East African tribes. A series of hypotheses dealing with the relationships between these stressors and tribal levels of aggressiveness are tested.

  3. The percentage of adult males in the population will be postively associated with high homicide rates (329)Bolton, Ralph - The ecology of East African homicide, 1973 - 2 Variables

    Using homicide rates as an indicator, this article examines the ecological factors that might be functioning as stressors in the environment of thirty-four East African tribes. A series of hypotheses dealing with the relationships between these stressors and tribal levels of aggressiveness are tested.

  4. The salience of color categories in folk tales is positively associated with the evolutionary sequence proposed by Berlin and Kay (1969) (233).Bolton, Ralph - Color terms in folk tales: a cross-cultural study, 1979 - 2 Variables

    Using a sample derived from the available folk tale literature, researchers test whether the salience of color terms in folk tales follow the evolutionary sequence put forth by Berlin and Kay (1969). Results support the hypothesis.

  5. Pathogen prevalence will be positively associated with conformity effect size (321).Murray, Damian R. - On the origins of cultural differences in conformity: Four tests of the path..., 2011 - 2 Variables

    The authors contribute to a growing body of theory which posits cultural differences as a result of variable pathogen prevalence by testing the relationship between pathogen richness and various measures of conformity in a cross-regional sample. After controlling for confounds such as life expectancy, GDP, population density, arable land area, and agricultural labor force, the authors suggest that conformity is emphasized to varying degrees in response to the increased vulnerability to pathogens generally associated with deviation from normative social conduct.

  9. High population density will be positively associated with pathological behavior in humans (i.e. homicide, suicide, drunken brawling, male insobriety, witchcraft attribution, and divorce) (743).Levinson, David - Population density in cross-cultural perspective, 1979 - 2 Variables

    This article investigates how population density affects social behavior, particularly whether it is a cause of stress in humans that manifests in pathological behavior or mistreatment of children. Analysis indicates that population density is not a cause of these behaviors, and with some variables (such as with divorce and sexual anxiety), there is a negative association with population density.

  10. The level of sexual jealousy will be positively associated with "social structures or cultural customs that (a) require pair-bonding for economic survival, companionship, and recognition of the individual as a competent adult member of the society; (b) stress the need for personal descendants; (c) emphasize private ownership of property; and (d) restrict nonmarital and extramarital sexual intercourse" (54).Hupka, Ralph B. - The cultural contribution to jealousy: cross-cultural aggression in sexual j..., 1990 - 5 Variables

    This article examines the relationship between social structures and sexual jealousy. Results suggest that social structures that emphasize the importance of pair-bonding, progeny, personal property, and exclusive marital sex relations are associated with sexual jealousy in males.
